Wallace rising

I had two questions from a reader about freshman forward Artem Wallace:
How has he looked so far, and how much will he play?
Good and definitely are the early answers.
The Huskies are in just their fifth day of practice and Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said he would watch the newcomers for two to three weeks before beginning to make decision regarding roles and playing time. And even after that, things can change drastically.
But Wallace seems certain to have a bigger role on this season’s team than expected for two reasons – the injury to Mike Jensen and his own progression.
Jensen will be sidelined until late December with a shoulder injury, which means Wallace will be needed to play meaningful minutes to help fill in on the front line.
But early word also is that Wallace is a little more ready to play than conventional wisdom suggested he might be. Romar marveled at his athleticism when talking with the press last week.
